how to allow only one session in Windows 2003

This one is pretty easy, on our 2003 server boxes we run some services as administrator that mess things up when triggered more than once. A typical scenario is a guy from IT connects to the remote server from our main offices and after a while another one does the same from somewhere else. This creates a problem so what I want to do is to disable multiple sessions so that only one session will be allowed.

I know it can be done because we have it in our other windows 2003 servers, but this one is a fresh installation and can't seem to find it, although I have found how to log off/disconnect a user after inactivity etc (in Users, properties, Sessions tab).

Any ideas?

I think you want the "Network Adapter" tab and change the max connection count. Screenshot attached.
